In this course you will learn how to determine the risk-adjusted cost of capital. You will apply these techniques to valuing of shares and bonds and to investment decisions of a firm. The analysis of investments will show you the relation between financial accounting and corporate finance. Next, the financing decisions of firms will be dealt with, taking into account institutional aspects of capital markets and the efficiency of these markets.
